Last Christmas was a cold foggy day in Ridgefield-WA. But it was not unpleasant for a morning stroll. So we, along with my bestie’s family drove to the city and walked around the downtown area for a while, taking in Ridgefield at Christmas.
The City of Ridgefield lies north of Vancouver-Washington. It is what you might call a sleepy little town but not without the charms of a small town in America. With its post office and police station looking like they are just out of a story book and shops looking like they are part of an old Hollywood movie, this quaint little town is quite a pleasant picture. If it is in Fall or Winter or even Spring that you are visiting here, be prepared for rain and fog. It is the Pacific Northwest, after all.
If you want to see this city in Clarke County at its active best, visit in early October when Ridgefield hosts its annual Bird Fest.
Ridgefield is also known for being the home of Ridgefield Wildlife Refuge with over 5000 acres of wetland rich in fauna and flora.
Coming back to the Downtown Ridgefield, this is what it looked like on Christmas day 2013:
